Blessing of the Waters

Abbey River Bridge, Colonels Lane, Chertsey KT16 8RJ
Friday, 19 January, 12nn

A unique service that takes place every year on 19 January, the Orthodox Epiphany Day. Brothers from the Orthodox St Edward Brotherhood at Brookwood celebrate their Blessing of the Water ceremony at Chertsey’s Abbey River because it is a historic site of martyrdom (going back to the days of Chertsey Abbey).
The brothers invite Christians from all denominations to share in the service which is followed by simple refreshments for everybody in the Abbey Bridge Farm barn.
